Facebook’s Zuckerberg defends actions on virus misinformation | BBC News

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has stated that they will continue to remove any false information regarding the coronavirus from their social media platforms. “Even if something isn’t going to lead to imminent physical harm, we don’t want misinformation to be the content that is going viral,” he commented. A more controversial removal includes Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro’s post where he stated that he believed that scientists had proven that a cure can be made for the coronavirus. Facebook has also removed content claiming that the 5G network was spreading the virus or that it had been created by various people or groups.
